Esther Susie Helen Mantic (nee Vallance)

January 1, 2015


October 28, 1931 - February 22, 2015

Passed away unexpectedly but peacefully with her daughters by her side and her family in her thoughts. Sue was raised in the Fraser Valley where she met the love of her life Fred. Making family homes and raising 3 daughters throughout coastal B.C., Sue was the heart & soul of her family and communities.

Following their retirement Fred and Sue set upon new adventures exploring Canada and the U.S.A. Sue’s love of square dancing sent them to Arizona for the winter returning to Port McNeill in the spring for the summer boating season on the Sue Bear.

She is survived by her 2 daughters Pamela (David) Deborah (Jude) 7 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren and 2 more due in the spring.

Sue was predeceased by her loving husband Fred, daughter Lila and 2 brothers Henry and Matthew. Her loyal companion “Shasta” will be making her new home with her daughter Pamela and her pack.

The family would like to thank all her friends and caregivers for loving her like we do. In lieu of flowers, donations will be gratefully accepted at Pacific Assistant Dogs Society in Burnaby via their website
